Principal Message, 5/19/24


Good Afternoon,


I hope everyone has enjoyed a restful weekend.


Congratulations to our Cougar Chorus on a fantastic spring performance last week! I am so proud of all these talented students have accomplished this year and grateful to Ms. McGowan and the parent volunteers who have worked so diligently to create a wonderful chorale experience for our students.


Please see this week’s announcements below.


Warmest Regards,
